I think it’s pretty!

I think your version doesn’t have quite as much of a “bump” in the back, which causes it to lose some volume.  Also, I think you just plain have less hair than the photo. 

Some sort of smoothing product might help keep your curls together, instead of sectioned out as much.  I think, though, that you’re in a battle between fullness and sleek curls.  My guess?  That model has extensions in.

@jenny001:  It is kind of hard to tell what your make-up looks like from the pictures you posted but it looks like the make-up and hair person did a decent job copying the look you were going for. I would agree that your hair probably needs to be set a little higher in the front/back. I would ask your make-up and hair person if they do airbrush make-up. When I did my hair/make-up trial, the make-up stayed on for the majority of a day. That stuff is amazing! But otherwise I like the hairstyle you are going for! 🙂

I agree- it does need to be setup higher in the back to add a little more volume on top, it looks fairly flat in the picture. Also, when did you take the picture- was it after 7hours? Just wondering because the curls do look a little messy to me- did she curl all your hair & then brush it out or something? If i curl my hair I have to go back when I’m done & apply a little bit of setting spray & twirl each curl individally around my fingers, otherwise it looks like a mess of curls… I’d be a little worried that they didn’t use a drop of hairspray as well…. 

It depends on your hair type but I have thick straight hair & it holds curling iron/flat iron curls for no more than 2-3 hours. But if I put my hair up in curlers when wet & let it dry then they hold for up to 2 days….

The way that all the hairstylists for my wedding curled our hair was to use a curling iron, then roll it up and pin it to the scalp, and let it “set” that way for at least an hour (no curlers). That’s what they told me was the key to getting curls to last the night! Oh, and about half a bottle of hairspray too.

I’m a hairdresser and I would say you should definitely consider some clip in extensions for volume and fullness without damage, and maybe some natural looking highlights to add dimension. I’d also get a second trial by someone else. Blow dryer/flat iron curls wouldn’t hold up all day/night. The curls are normally pinned and set as PP above me said.

I have to agree with the other girls, you need more volume.  Extensions would definitely give you that and there are so many out there that won’t be as damaging on your hair as the old ones once were.  If you do a retake post more pics for us! Good luck!
